Texas Democrats on the Start of Public Impeachment Hearings

Austin, TX — Today, the House Intelligence Committee began the first public hearings in the Trump impeachment inquiry. In open hearings this week, Americans will have the opportunity to hear firsthand about the president’s gross abuse of power.

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“Today’s public impeachment inquiry is yet another step in the right direction. No one is above the law, not even the President of the United States. The American people deserve to know the truth. The Texas Democratic Party stands with the Texas Democratic Congressional delegation. Trump must be thoroughly investigated for his actions and if found guilty, properly held accountable. The only way to do this is to continue Congress’s full, open, and public impeachment inquiry.

“We plan to follow the facts, wherever they lead and we would encourage elected officials on both sides of the aisle to put their country ahead of politics and do what is best for the American people.”
